Corporate Partnerships



Our corporate partners provide Susan G. Komen for the Cure with an opportunity to reach out to a variety of audiences with important breast health and breast cancer information and to raise funds to support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment. In addition, the initiatives provide corporate supporters an opportunity to make a positive impact on the fight against breast cancer—and involve employees and consumers in the cause.

In today's economy, Americans believe it's more important than ever for companies to be socially responsible (Cone/Duke University Behavioral Cause Study) In fact, 83% of Americans wish more of the products, services and retailers they use would support causes (2010 Cone Cause Evolution Study ). 

We always welcome the opportunity to develop new corporate partnerships. Our cause marketing team looks for companies with a solid history and strong brand image who would like to make a contribution that is significant and clearly defined to the consumer. Furthermore, our goal is to offer a wide variety of opportunities for people to get involved. 

We strive to provide each of our donors with a unique way to support the cause that is important to them. Komen for the Cure strongly adheres to the Better Business Bureau's Standards for Charity Accountability.

Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure® Sponsorship

A Capitol Tradition

The Global Race for the Cure is Komen’s flagship Race for the Cure event with millions of media impressions, celebrity attendance, and extensive support from Capitol Hill. On June 4, 2011, the 22nd annual Race for the Cure event was held in Washington, DC with nearly 40,000 participants, including 3,286 breast cancer survivors, joined together in the 5K event, as a living testament to the power that one person can make a difference. Funds raised through the Komen Global Race are invested in DC area based breast cancer research and outreach programs, serving the breast health needs of millions.


Global Race by the Numbers
• Since Komen began granting directly to the National Capital Area (NCA) 22 years ago, more than $24 million has been invested into local organizations
• Komen funded $6.5 million in grants to the NCA in 2009 and 2010 alone and has committed another $4.5 million in 2011
• The 2011 Global Race garnered 32.3 million media impressions through radio, print, TV and social media
• Decision-makers, politicos, and DC influentials came out in full force, including 41 congressional teams and 27 international teams

Where the Funds Go
• 75% of Komen’s National Capital Area (NCA) net income stays in the DC metropolitan area (including parts of VA and MD) to fund local screening, treatment, and education programs for the medically underserved. In addition, Komen NCA grants to organizations offering treatment assistance & patient support services.   
• The remaining 25% helps fund Komen’s work around the globe to share knowledge and experience, and to fund education and breast health services in regions where few exist
